The hotel is more for first-timers, short-visit travellers or working executives on meeting or business trips. Room's pretty compact but might be a bit cramp for some. Only basic toiletries like shampoo and shower gel, bath towels and toilet papers are provided. WIFI's available but you need to pay for it. Transportation wise, it's very near to Union station and within walking distance to nearby metro lines and light rails. Reception and restaurant staffs are pretty helpful when approached. If you are visiting Toronto with a few friends and your budget is not too tight, perhaps you might want to consider sharing a shuttle taxi instead to avoid the construction road works near the Station. The reception staff could also help you book a taxi back to Airport upon request. Opposite the hotel is a convenient store that opens around 7am - 8pm (depends). Basically, this area is a financial district, so it'll only buzz during the daytime, and quiets down in the evening. So you might need to travel a bit further for some extra nightlife.
